Coming Back Safe and Strong: Welcoming Back Students
Play • 58 min
The COVID-19 pandemic has posed unimaginable, unprecedented, and highly unpredictable challenges for all of us in the world ... across the country … on Long Island … and here at Stony Brook University … where we are just three days away from opening our doors to students, on campus and virtually. In this episode, we take a look at what that campus environment will look like when students begin the fall semester.
This episode of "Beyond the Expected Podcast, Coming Back Safe and Strong: Welcoming Back Students" features Marisa Bisiani, Assistant Vice President, Student Health, Wellness and Prevention Services; Rick Gatteau, Vice President for Student Affairs & Dean of Students in the Division of Student Affairs; Shelley Germana, Associate Provost for Academic Success in the Division of Undergraduate Education and Lawrence M. Zacarese, Assistant Vice President for Campus Safety who serves as moderator/host/panelist.
The panel looks at what we've done to create the safest, most secure conditions for our students. They discuss how our student affairs, academic success, and health services teams have collaborated with their colleagues across campus to help ensure that our students have the best possible experience. Measures like COVID-19 testing … screening … virtual advising and counseling services … face mask regulations … social distancing protocols ... hybrid learning scenarios … are all covered. And, students’ most frequently asked questions are answered as the Stony Brook University community has worked to prepare themselves for an academic year like no other.
